Forward Louisiana, an initiative of the Louisiana Progress Action Fund, is inviting those backing Louisiana’s participation in the Medicaid Expansion component of the Affordable Care Act to bring the story of why all of Louisiana will benefit from the state’s participation in the program.
The purpose of the swing will be to move the conversation on the issue beyond the realm of politics and look at the real world impact on people, communities and institutions that have a vital stake in the availability of the health coverage and money the Medicaid expansion program.
Data on the number of people who could receive coverage under the expansion; the hospitals, clinics and provider community that would benefit from the expansion (including jobs); and the threat posed to those institutions and communities if those funds are refused by the State of Louisiana will be provided.
